"Skills To Pay The Bills" as written by Adam Horovitz, Adam Nathaniel Yauch, Michael Louis Diamond and Tom Cushman....
I've got the skills to pay the bills, ya
I got the got the got the skills to pay the bills
I've got the skills to pay the bills
Ah what you got, I got the skills to pay the bills

I'm Mike D and I'm bustin' out trap kits (Haha)
The time has come so I'm going to rap this (yeah)
You Rip Van Winkle, now you're gonna wake up
MC's, pick up a hobby that you're gonna' take up
Well, on the stage I'm known to break fool, huh
But when I'm at the table it's the Futterman's rule (wohoo)
Workin' on my game cause it's time to tax
I'm on a crazy mission to wax Bob Mack, shit
Up to the top, 'till the very last drop (yeah)
I'll make you tapes of the rhymes I say
I'm selling sex rhymes by the pound
You horny MC's, I watch you getting around my ? agh shit

The skills to pay the bills
I got the got the got the skills to pay the bills
I got the got the got the skills to pay the bills
I got the skills to pay the bills, ya'll

So it better pull through when it comes to me
Let it go down like it's supposed to be
Words together like birds in a flock
Ah yes rhymes on time like the hands on a clock
Well I'm an epileptic, a skept-a-cleptic, check it
I'm cutting up the beats from the bear, I clept it
I fucked around and then I lost my tooth ahaa
I'm telling everybody it's the goddamn truth
Like Dennis Coffey, I'm a Scorpio
Like my man Schneider, I'm a super ho (super ho)
Making mountains out of molehills and rockin' some mo' skills
Butt naked beats with butt naked fills

I got the skills what skills
To pay the bills
I got the skills what skills
To pay the bills
I got the skills what skills
To pay the bills
I got the skills to pay the bills ya'll

Hu-hu-hu-haa

A-wella', wella', wella', wella', welcome back
I don't sell bullets and I don't sell crack
Rub a little oil on my neck and back shit
Now listen baby doll, we outta hit the sack
The original, Young Aboriginal (ohoo)
Continued evolution of an individual, well I'll tell ya
Got so many rhymes ya know my throat is sore
It's 1992 and still no one to vote for
Well, like my words is what I'm seeing through my own eyes
A little vision of the truth in a world of lies
When it comes to coming off I like to get my fill
Well I got the skills

Uhh what you got Mike - my skills to pay the bills

    General CommentI still can't believe they left this one of the album. Maybe it's a little cheesy or something. I don't know. It's one of my favorites though.
